Sandra,
Yes you are correct.
Mary is where I started to explore these children and found them being evacuated  to Canada. Hence my original query. 
It did bring home to me the evacuation experience for all these young children in a strange land and compounded by the 1941 death of the their mother. 

My wife, aged 6, was also sent to Canada August 1940 but flew back early via Lisbon only to have a German fighter plane shoot them up over the Bay of Biscay.

   The children went through a lot if they were informed, as ThePeerage site also mentions that Ronald was said to have been a P.O.W some time in 1942.  Married again & lived to be 82.
 Just found evidence of him serving Jan 1945 so not sure about that???

We probably should not be discussing Mary as she appears to be alive, but already has a great deal of published celebrity for numerous accomplishments so probably alright. (magistrate-20 years / climbed Mount Kilimanjaro - twice)

Individual & group portraits of Mary & her husband & children
Husband used John at marriage but appears to use Richard later in life, perhaps to differentiate from his father. Wish my rellies would have used repetitive names as only middle names.
